1344 - Gun rack
1345 - Protectoseal safety funnel/can presumably for recovery of
flammable liquids evidenced by the flame arrestor on the funnel
1346 - cube of magnetic balls
1347 - Horse snowshoes or mudshoes?
1348 - opener for large containers or drums?
1349 - Pierce-o-matic?
1350 - Shackles for prisoner?
Quite a tricky set, methinks; I only think my guesses are reasonably
likely on the first and last items.
1344 - Possibly a gun rack, with the barrels going through the square
holes and the butts of the stocks resting in the larger gaps between the
blocking in the tray. The compartment underneath would presumably store
ammunition and accessories. Such an open design would probably not be
generally accepted today, when guns are kept carefully controlled under
lock and key for the most part.
1345 - small parts cleaner? Solvent in the lower drum part, and
operating the top tray pumps a little up over the screen for removing
grime or whatever.
1346 - It's a cube of ball bearings (magnetic?). Why would one
construct one? Maybe to illustrate a crystal lattice pattern for
chemistry instruction, and maybe because it's just neat looking.
1347 - Snowshoes for horses?
1348 - This could be a tire iron and wheel rim reforming tool. I'd
guess the slot might be to manipulate valve stems...but that's just a
guess. Maybe also to hold the iron down or add a handle or strap for
1349 - Picture frame assembly jig? though I can't quite see how it
would actually be used for that purpose....
1350 - Arm iron to immobilize a prisoner.
Now to read the other guesses
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot
1344: Might be a rifle rack as other's suggested, but it might also
be part of something else, like an artist's easel. It looks like
something has been broken off it.
1345: Looks like a scale, but with no indicator it wouldn't work too
well. Unless the indicator's on the part we can't see.
1346: It's a square of magnetic spheres.
1347: A horse snowshoe?
1348: Opener/pryer of some sort. Don't know about the slot.
1349: Pinion/gear puller, adjustable for various gear sizes
There's no such thing as a free lunch, but certain accounting practices can
result in a fully-depreciated one.
1348 is a fireman's tool. Useful for wrenching hose connections, prying
open doors, removing hydrant caps. The slot is for shutting off service
gas valves at the meter to reduce fuel in a fire situation.
1350 appears to be a Lily handcuff, or a reproduction. This design was
made infamous as it is the style of handcuff that was used on the
conspirators in the President Lincoln assassination.
"If things don't improve soon I may have to ask you to stop helping me."
Late, but here's my guesses since I actually have some this time!
1344: Umbrella stand
1345: The gismo that folks at car washes use to get cleaner/wax/etc onto
a pad to put on your car trim/tires/etc (I don't know it's official
name, but it's exactly what they use)
1350: If the center somehow twists and/or the ends can somehow open,
then leg catchers/restraints for animals or possibly human
Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional,
illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an
unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the
proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
